A Toronto man and his Californian parents have been charged with faking a mans death for a $1-million insurance payout.
According to police, when one of the suspects was living in Toronto, he allegedly took out a $3.525-million life insurance policy, with his wife as the beneficiary. Police allege that he and his wife then travelled to Iran in 2008, where his wife claimed the man died of a heart attack. She collected $1.01 million from the insurance company.
In February, U.S. Marshals arrested Alireza Shojaei, 44, and Koukab Shojaei, 41, in Los Angeles, while Toronto police arrested Mohammed Shojaei, 20. Alireza and Koukab were extradited to Canada on Thursday. Together, the family faces 21 charges of fraud and uttering forged documents.
